In September 2015, ISIS was pushed back by the Iraqi government and allied Shia militias, which took over much of the country.
The Iraqi army then took over and began pushing back ISIS from Fallujah.
ISIS was driven out of Fallujah, but the group had already established a stronghold in Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city.
